To make it short: the place is a bit expensive, but nice. But the owners where SO incredible unfriendly to me. In my whole travel for several years I didnt made one experience that bad. I was the only guest and without one nice word, good morning, small talk etc. the send me away from the nice spots in the... More

The place is nicely situated at the edge of town and has stunning views. The food in the restaurant is pretty good to. However, a bit more enthusiasm and effort of the owner wouldn't harm. We arrived in the evening and almost had to beg for some boiling water and a spoon. We've experienced much better hospitality in Bolivia.

the hotel is undoubted beautiful! the private rooms are spacious and clean, there is a lush garden with pool and amazing views. but what definitely makes me dislike the place is the attitude of the french owner and as well the bolivian cook. there is no welcoming vibe, all they want from you is money. everyday they would ask very...

This resort just SUCKS, we are currently in it and it is the very worse we ve seen since we started our trip in Bolivia and Peru. The attendant was cold as ice (i didnt know clients were disturbing in a hotel). The bed is not confortable at all (matras must be at least 20yr old). Bathroom is not clean... More

The situation, looking over the valley would compensate for a lot, but I found the people very pleasant, incuding the French owner. He wasn't gushing but was forthcoming with information and assistance and only wanted my first name when making a resevration that morning by phone. The garden is beautiful and the pool is a bonus (a few dead insects... More

We made reservations from La Paz and the woman that we spoke in the phone, told us that they had double rooms for us so we went straight to the Hotel from the bus terminal. Once we got there, two bolivian employees received us and told us that they had doubles. After that, a french guy showed up and started... More

I agree with the past couple of reviews. The french owners are not interested in being friendly to the travelers. We stayed two nights and although they were not full, they were turning people away because they didn't want to bother. It was a Tuesday which is the day their restaurant is closed, so I think they just wanted a... More

I didn't like this place! The French owners were soooo rude and unfriendly! I would never come back! We stayed just one night in Coroico but if we did longer we would have definitely change the place. View is gorgeous but it's no because of the location, you get gorgeous views almost everywhere in Coroico. Food was nice but you... More

We stayed only one night because we were very disappointed. Our main complaint was that the French owners were very unfriendly. They acted like they were doing us a favor in renting us a room! It may be okay for backpackers on a limited budget, but if you have any luggage, forget it. From the road down a steep hill... More
